Poem - The Hat

An old man was sitting
And wearing a hat
A young lad came over
And started to chat
"Can I ask about that?"

The young hobbit asked:
"What's under the hat?"

"Are you keeping a pet"
"So warm in your hat?"
"I imagine it nestling"
"On your hair, is it sat?"
"Is it a rat?"

"But on second thoughts now"
"I don't think it's that"
"For maybe it's something"
"You quite like to pat?"
"Is it a cat?"

"On looking more closely"
"It seems rather flat"
"Perhaps a small creature"
"That isn't so fat?"
"Is it a bat?"

The old man he smiled
As he raised up his hat
And there was revealed
Not a rat, cat or bat
But another hat!

The young hobbit asked:
"Now, what's under that?"
